Description

FuturePLAY is happy to partner again with Everfi to present you "Endeavour", a perfect digital resource to engage Elementary students in real-world applications of STEAM. 

Addressing topics around the environment and sustainability in a meaningful way is essential and relevant in the 21st century classroom. EVERFI provides free, digital programs that can help teach those important concepts in an engaging way. This session will highlight resources surrounding topics like: climate change, global resource constraints, biodiversity. 

Teachers will see how technology can assist in learning these concepts, how to set up free teacher accounts, and how these programs fit within their lesson plans. The resources featured in this session are suitable for Grades 5-8 and have connections to the BC Science and Social Studies curricula. 

Featured resources: 

Sustainability Foundations: An introductory course to EVERFI’s Environmental Learning suite, teaching students about the interconnectedness of environmental and human systems.

Plants, Animals, and Our World: A program made up of four lessons focused on sustaining global resources, protecting biodiversity and positively impacting climate change.
